1998 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

SKU #999498 92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark No tasting note given. Inner quote mark (4/2002)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This opaque purple-colored, muscular, full-bodied, classically made St.-Julien displays impressive concentration, chewy, highly-extracted flavors of black fruits, iron, earth, and spicy wood, and a powerful mouth-feel. A pure, uncompromising, traditionally-styled wine, it is to be admired for its authenticity, class, and quality. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2001)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium ruby. Very pure aromas of black cherry and licorice, with faint nutty and herbal nuances; comes across as distinctly riper than the Langoa. Dense and chocolatey, with sound acids and underlying minerality giving the flavors impressive clarity. Richly oaky. Finishes long, with big, ripe tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2001)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1998 Léoville Barton has a simple but clean and fresh bouquet: blackberry, wild hedgerow, a touch of fennel and tarragon. There is a hint of tobacco that becomes more evident with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, potent tobacco and leafy notes, a relatively lightweight Léoville Barton that just attenuates a little swiftly on the bay leaf and black tea-tinged finish. There is a sense of elegance here but I would drink this now and over the next decade. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very minty, with blackberry and dark currant on the nose. Spicy too. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a spicy, floral and currant aftertaste. Solid and very pretty. Give it more time. (JS, Web-2009) Inner quote mark
